Fox — a former CIA officer who, according to her Twitter bio, is now a “writer,” “peace activist” and “advocate of compassionate engagement and strategic nonviolence at home and overseas” — and Kennedy III wed in July, at the famous Kennedy Compound on Cape Cod in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.
The groom, 34, wore a blue and green floral tuxedo jacket with tails and white pants while the bride chose an off-the-shoulder white gown with floral embroidery and a starfish crown on her head.

Kennedy III had been quietly dating Fox for about a year before their wedding, according to the New York Post, which first reported the news of the couple’s nuptials ahead of the event.
“[It] is going to be kind of a clambake, which is the same thing Cheryl and I did and it worked,” he said.
